of the state department has issued a report on the events that took place in benghazi, september 11 of this year. i think it is excellent. there are other committees in congress that have begun other investigations and i think that each of these will contribute to our understanding of what happened in benghazi and help to make sure that nothing like it happens again. under the senate rules, our committee has a special responsibility for oversight. as i said, for the interaction of different agencies of government, it is through that lens that after the tragic events of benghazi on such a member leventhal, the senator and i began our investigation. obviously we were time limited by the end of this year and end of this congress, the end of my service here. i am grateful not only to the senator for once again the extraordinary by partisanship we have had, but also our staffs who have worked together for well. they really work through the holiday when i must ask for my benghazi team to come down to our first floor office. the numbers were smaller than they had been earlier, but they had
will be hostile senators who have questions about benghazi? >> i think if he chooses to go that direction, it's -- he has that right. now look, susan rice went through the talks last week. some went well, some didn't go that well. but i think that overall, if it's the president's -- it is his option to do it. i think right now, you know, it looks like he probably will. but i don't think he, my sense is that -- she hasn't done anything yet that is going to disqualify her. senator lieberman said that. you have most of the senate democrats who are rallying behind her. i think if she was put up, i think she would be confirmed. >> shannon: matt, doug mentioned the meetings with the senators this week. some say it's the early making the rounds and trying to make nice as if she is going to be the nominee for secretary of state. some of those meetings that doug mentioned did not go well. there were those that came out and said they were more concerned than they were before the meeting with her. what uphill battle do you think she would face? >> large one. there is a happy senior senator from massachu
inouye tomorrow. that's going to take up a lot. there's the viewing today. you've got the benghazi hearings. time is running out on the calendar. so what i'm hearing is, go home for christmas and come back the day after, come back on the 26th. >> the plan b would, as a diversion, make sense if they were still talking. but they're not talking. and according to senior white house officials, they haven't talked since monday. now, in normal circumstances, maybe that works, but we actually are getting to the point where they need to strike a deal. >> especially conversation one on one. >> if they don't strike a deal in the next day or so, you can't write something this big by the end of the year. >> correct. andrea's right. >> they're going to have to start piecing this together. >> they'll go home for christmas, get an earful from people, and then come back and pass it quickly. >> and they do have stuff written. they've got pieces according to conrad and the other budget leaders in both houses, they've got -- >> conrad, speaking of conrad, he was sure they were going to have a deal. >>
on thursday as planned about the deadly september 11th attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. joining me now is former state department egypt officer joel ruben. good to have you here. this long-awaited independent report on the attack that killed u.s. ambassador chris stevens and three others in benghazi is going to be presented to the state department today. secretary clinton is not going to be there. is it crucial that she testify at some point in all of this, because this is another example of where she's not appearing before these meetings, before these committees. >> well, thomas, this is a very important week for the accountability review board. the results are coming out today to the state department. they'll be in open session later in the week with the two top deputies to secretary clinton. it is unfortunate that she's ill and certainly to have her forcefully communicate the results of the report would be excellent. she is the best at this, the best that the administration has to offer, but her deputies are very strong and they will make the arguments that need to b
of language we can't call things what they are. what happened in benghazi. it was called a spontaneous mob. why was that? isn't want to coall it terror. it is i think sansane. >> any advice on how to deal with the intolerance on the left? >> you know there's a book out there. it will be on tour next week it will be in texas in oklahoma, louisiana with that book. here's the thing. when you are dealing with fake outrage you ignore them. they are not worth your time. if they don't go away mock them and use their tools. their own guilt is about the racism is causing me to call them a bigot. that will make your head explode. then you can laugh and dance around them. >> i bet they will. good luck on the book tour. the book is called the joy of hate. by the way all of the members of our studio audience they are going to leave quite happy because they are going to get a copy of greg gutfeld's book. >> wait they have to pay for that. >> no they don't. you are giving it to them. >> up next gabby douglas. a small business owner who wants to expand and create more jobs. it is turning his american drea
rice wasn't on tv shortly after the benghazi attack, and not just declared u about emphatically declared that it was a result of spontaneous demonstration. i think all america as they saw her say that, couldn't believe it. people don't bring povertyars to demonstrations. >> steve: absolutely. you would think that traditionally, that would be enough to disqualify her u about the white house seems indents on pushing her and now say republicans who criticize her are doing it because she's black and a woman. >> we haven't had a white male secretary of state in 15 years. not since the incompetent mr. christopher was secretary of state. that is part of a larger landscape that i'm worried about because since 2009, we thought we had gone beyond race. but if you look at comments people are making offhandedly, everybody from samuel l. jackson to the reverend joseph lowery said white people belong in hell and just lately jamie fox joked about shooting white people, morgan freeman, it's almost as if there has been an outpouring of racial separatism and hostility. it's not a good climate. >>
. and what happened in benghazi, you know, it was called the ton spain yus mob. what was it, didn't want it call it terror, insane. >> it is insane. any advice from our audience how do we deal with intolerance from the left. >> well, you know, there's a book out there. (laughter) >> and it's going to be on tour next week, oklahoma and louisiana. and fake outrage is usually done by someone, ignore them, they're not worth your time. if they don't go away, mock them and use them against them. if someone calls you a bigot, you know, you're projecting your ownism is why you're calling me a bigot. and that will make their head explode and then you can laugh and dance around them. >> the book is called "the joy of hate" and the studio audience is going to be happy, a copy of greg gut held's book. >> wait a minute, they have to pay for it. >> no. and gabby douglas, a business manner trying to create jobs and prime minister's trying the dream into a nightmare. i'd like to hear from you, go to my website, and the lead fooeb section and sign up for my textbook page and follow me on twitter. you ca
is a difficult transition. libya, we obviously know what happened there at benghazi and a country that is unstable. even tunisia isn't doing that well. when you have crisis and chaos there isn't an opportunity for american leadership. what you would need is a president who would have the grand strategy for what do i want to see happen in the world in the next four years and how am i going to get there? >> the strategy seems to be america withdrawal and retreat in the world. we are r going to cut the gash and the defense budget and we are pulling out of afghanistan. we are already out of iraq. we have add do indicated doing anything in syria. the message around the world is that the u.s. is going to be much -- it is going to lead a lot less i than it has. >> we had the right strategy. we could have the right strategy and there isn't an opportunity. >> in the 1920s it game clear that the victorious powers of the united states, france, britain weren't prepared to enforce the global order that they had imposed at thefo versailles settlement. and it became obvious to countries like ge
states. we're almost two years into it. look at libya, benghazi. overflow into places like mali where al qaeda is controlling territory. egypt, bahrain, yemen, syria. the place, the place is really a mess and i don't think the administration's policies have been very effective. they oversold what they thought would happen in this part of the world. we have real challenges to american interests right there right now. adam: i don't know if you can answer this question in 30 seconds if you were president obama with egypt and syria falling apart, what do you do? >> oh gosh in 30 seconds. i don't know how you talk about that but you've to be proactive as opposed to reactive. you can't allow these things to kind unfold without taking, taking measures, economic, diplomatic, potentially militariliry little to shape the future of american interests in that part of the world. i can't go through all that in 30 seconds. you can't be reactive but you need to be proactive not assuming things will go your way. adam: peter brookes. hopefully we have a discussion in the future and things don't actually d
chris stevens and three others in tripoli on -- benghazi on september 11th. weak -- especially civil strife create exactly the kind of environment that terrorist are drawn to. libya's provided one such case where extremist can cause real problems for states undergoing difficult transitions to the democracy. another example is syria. there al qaeda in iraq seeks to establish a long-term dream. by fighting alongside the syrian opposition groups the members are working to hijack the longer struggle to suit their own extremist needs. last week we designated on the front of the ail yes, sir of aca i which is already listed as a foreign terrorist terrorist organization. as they try to wrap themselves in the legitimate sei of the we called it a warning to support the opposition to the syrian people and not help the terrorist group. to add to the list of new challenges, in west africa the loosely organized of collection of factions who have some ties to -- public sympathy. the number in sophistication to the attacks increasing and while the group focusing principally on local nigeria issues
over the benghazi terrorist attack. president obama made the announcement this afternoon at the white house. >> i am very proud to announce my choice for america's next secretary of state, john kerry. in a sense, john's entire life has prepared him for this role. having served with valor in vietnam, he understands that we have a responsibility to use american power wisely, especially our military power. and he knows, from personal experience, that when we send our troops into harm's way, we must give them the sound strategy, a clear mission, and the resources that they need to get the job done. in an extraordinarily distinguished senate career and as chairman of the foreign relations committee, john has played a central role in every major foreign policy debate for nearly 30 years. as we turn the page on a decade of war, he understands that we've got to harness all elements of american power and ensure that they're working together-- diplomatic and development, economic and political, military and intelligence-- as well as the power of our values which inspire so many people around th
to update you on the benghazi report that came out of the state department yesterday. it should be made public on wednesday. here is the "baltimore sun." benghazi "rasmussen reports"s hearings are set the high level state department investigative panel turned over a secret report assessing blame in the attacks -- look for our coverage of hose public hearings on c-span. for details go to our website, c-span.org. also from the administration cabinet pick could be revealed on friday. obama's nominees for state and defense but so-called cliff talks made delay announcement. back to our topic here for all of you. sandra in massachusetts, independent caller. sandra, what is the role, if anything, of the federal state government in mental health? caller: well, they need to step right in right now and address the facts that hey, maybe one of them are like this. they, too, who are making these laws are not governing very well because one, you don't get the drugs you need. i know that for a fact because mental health runs on -- in our family. and two, the children and stuff like that are overdrug,
about how the u.s. and just an attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. it will be on tomorrow morning at 8:00 a.m. and at 6:00 p.m. on c-span and cnn radio. we will show you a little bit about what represented in glad to say. [video clip] >> the most important thing is to assure that no benghazi happens in the future. there were plenty of mistakes. in the future, the coordination is to be better. that is the most important thing. i think it was a mistake for mitt romney to use this as a political thing during the campaign. foreign policy should be bipartisan to the extent it is possible. in a time of tragedy, americans need to rally around -- rally together and not try to use it for political partisan purposes. mistakes were made. an ambassador was killed. we need to dissect it and see what happened and make sure it does not happen again. there were recommendations that were made. secretary clinton accepts all of them. she appointed someone to overview. i think that is important. it is not gotcha politics that i want to come out of this. we have to make sure that our diplomats in plac
report found that security in the post benghazi was woefully inadequate leading up to the attack on the u.s. consulate that killed chris stevens. he's got a whole lot of international issues to deal with, but he's also going to be leading a department that, including its foreign staff, has 75,000 people. >> all right. elise labott, jessica yellin, wolf blitze thank you very much, all of you guys. we'll take a quick break and we'll be following this. arrhea,? yeah. one phillips' colon health probiotic cap each day helps defend against these digestive issues with three strains of good bacteria. approved!

should be speaking more to the loss of brave americans in benghazi, libya, why is she the one that is pinpointed, pinpointed, pointed and with, i think, inappropriate accusations casting aspersions and doing damage to a reputation of service that is undeserving. so my words are simply this, let's be fair. let's carry on our rights as members of congress and speak to the issue of what a tragic incident that occurred in benghazi. if there is a nomination, which i hope there will be, among the many talented people that the president has, it will be his choice, senators that are eager, friends of mine, senator kerry, and others, may have this opportunity. but let us hold to the premise that you are innocent until proven guilty. that someone's great service is deserving of respect, and she is deserving of respect. susan rice is deserving of respect. let me move quickly to this idea that america cannot settle its issues of financial concern before the fiscal deadline. and see there is no cliff, because as we all well know, the simple premise of making sure that we have tax cuts for
objection, so ordered. >> mr. speaker, yesterday was a three-month anniversary of the benghazi, libya, where four people died. mr. wolf: to date, none of the terrorists have been brought to justice. following the attack, the tuesday kneesan government blocked the f.b.i. from interviewing the only detained man. the f.b.i. team has been there for five weeks, and they will not make him available. jans of 2011, the u.s. has given more than $320,000 taxpayer dollars to tunisia. i ask that all u.s. aid to tunisia be cut off because they're blocking the attempt to investigate the terrorist. why are we giving any sort of aid to a country that's proven at this time is no friend or ally to the united states? why are we not doing everything in our power to investigate the events in benghazi that killed four americans? should secretary clinton fail to cut off aid to tunisia, i will take legislative action to cut off the aid to tunisia. i yield back the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the time of the gentleman has expired. for what purpose does the gentleman from washington seek recognition?
intelligence capabilities. we sometimes screw that up as the case of benghazi demonstrates the biggest policy question which i hope we debate is how we become more nimble and understand the political trends. thanks. [applause] thank you very much. bret coming you are up. first of all entry honored to be here and particularly honored to be on the panel introduced by jim i have the greatest admiration for and to be with this mostly distinguished panel. [laughter] the exception of course is reuel. the austrian physicist used to put down his worst students by saying you're not even wrong. [laughter] that's why i am inclined to take the comments. you know, if i say to my son what is five plus seven and he says 11, that's wrong. if he says banana then he's not even wrong. what you have heard from reuel especially is a banana. what would he has just essentially done in a very slippery and disingenuous way is to say that the choice that we face is between secular dictatorship in the strike or various others and democracy we have to accept this democracy because even if it is an islamist democracy if
. and this president is committed to just that. but the other topics -- benghazi. the state department said secretary clinton received the report from the review board. can you give us the idea of when you expect the president may receive that and what kind of action the white house may take to prevent another terror event? >> i don't have a timetable for you in terms of that process, when the report moves from the state department. the president has looked forward to the review board to work as he looks forward to the completion of the investigation by the fbi. so it is hard to say what action he will take because we have not seen the reports. >> the fbi is still investigating as well. do you have any sense the last time the president got an update from the fbi as to where their investigation of benghazi stance. also, secretary clinton has been ill obviously and no one would expect to testify right now but is the administration committed to have her testify before she leaves office? >> i would ask the state department about her schedule and her illness that she is dealing with. but i certainly am no
communication failures in the fort hood terrorism case, and our current scrutiny of the attacks in benghazi, joe lieberman has always put country first. his actions are guided by deeply held principles and aimed toward progress. he has demonstrated his willingness time and again to risk his political career to do what he believes is right for america. joe brings the same dedication to everything he does. working with him on the armed services committee, i know firsthand how devoted he is to our men and women in uniform, and the deep respect he has for their service and their sacrifice. his leadership in bringing about the repeal of the discriminatory don't ask, don't tell law was nothing short of extraordinary, and it gives me great personal pride to have assisted him in achieving that important victory for justice. and it was vintage joe lieberman. he did what was right. he never gave up. and he got the job done. throughout his many years of dedicated service, joe has demonstrated the kind of character that america needs and that the american people deserve. it is not by coincidence that the po

. caller: good morning. i have a question about benghazi. nobody has said anything like this. it seems to me, the president would get on the phone with the president of the other country and say, "please help us save our people." the in the u.s. help support the efforts of the people to get rid of gaddafi? why did obama or hillary clinton get on the phone and call the president of libya and say, "you owe us. san whenever you have to save our people." i believe the local forces went in after it was over and our people were dead. to didn't somebody jawbone, get them in there to help? host: you can talk about any topic you like. joel florida, what is on your mind. caller: you were talking about afghanistan. one of the main reasons we are over there is to keep the poppy plants growing. host: what brings you to that opinion? caller: just research that i do online. host: how do you think things are going to work effort with the troupe drawdown? caller: anybody's guess. host: alright. sharon from california. caller: in 2013, there is a movement coming to washington, d.c., about systemic corru
was not. i was talking about benghazi. >> you do not use the word immigration. >> it came up a little bit. it came up in the following way. people wanted to know that the president cared about the issue. they wanted to understand not -- why it had not been achieved in his first term. this served almost the same function i view, that of a threshold issue. if they are ok on immigration, they will listen to the rest of it. if you're not, they will not listen to the rest of it. but not think it is fully the problem. it served a little bit in this anecdotal evidence derived from interviews. it was an issue. it was almost a euro can this issue. >> alphonso. what did you do on your thoughts and vacation? i know you organize an independent television ad campaign in nevada. explain to us what that means. how does that word? how does it work? what did the election but like stick to your personal experience and then we will broaden it out. >> the great thing is that it is independent. i'm not here to defend the romney campaign. we realized we needed to do something different. the latino vote would b
susan rice, the u.n. ambassador who ran into a lot of criticisms from republicans over the benghazi matter, had taken herself out of the running. so pretty much john kerry was the only candidate. the question is, what happens to the rest of the national security team. i haven't gotten any word yet as to whether there is a defense secretary replacement for leon panetta, but we do know john kerry is going to be named secretary of state by the president today. >> john, another question, of course, is what happens to that senate seat in massachusetts, does scott brown choose to run again and move that senate seat from the democratic column to the republican column? any insights this? >> well, that's certainly a possibility. scott brown hasn't ruled that out. but you have a democratic governor there who has talked about a number -- or there's been speculation about a number of people who could be candidates for that seat. either by appointment or in the special elections. don't know how quickly the special election would take place, but everybody from barney frank to young ted kennedy, t
at the -- you know, in her term, leading the benghazi situation, and also tim geithner's numbers are so bad because of the terrible fiscal situation we're in. and i think susan rice, i think the president stood behind her, as long as he possibly could, and just couldn't stand behind her anymore. i think what we're seeing, already, with the hagel potential nomination, is i think a lot of the republicans are withholding their judgment. they are -- they don't like the way he was critical of the iraq situation. but many of them, what i'm hearing, is they're reserving judgment. but i think it is good for the administration to throw names out there. to see what kind of feedback they may be getting. but we all know that the nomination process is a tough one, no matter who is put out there to face the questions. >> alice, senator mike crapo of idaho was arrested this week in virginia, for dui, and he's found himself now back in the hometown newspaper in idaho, being compared, at least favorably, to former senator larry craig. listen to this and let's look at the words -- oh, i can't read it. all ri
